I Prayed have prayed
Father God, Your Word does NOT return void. We pray that You would keep these Christian stations on the air and spread Your Word powerfully throughout Ukraine and the surrounding countries.

“Human words aren’t working right now. We need God’s words…” 

“Nothing is more powerful than the Word of God at this moment.” Max, FEBC Program director, Kyiv, Ukraine 

All 7 radio stations of Far East Broadcasting (FEBC) managed to stay on the air in Ukraine over the first 2 days of the Russian invasion. Updates by phone, text and video come from FEBC program directors and broadcasters around the country. Each tells of taking every opportunity to share the gospel: 


Feb 26, 2022 Everyone on the team is still alive. Praise God! Control of the radio network has now been transferred from Kyiv to the western city of Chernivtsy. Six out of seven stations are still on the air [through 3rd day!] We believe the station in Shastya is down, as this town is now 80% destroyed… Trained counselors posted all over Ukraine are taking calls almost non-stop. Nina, the leader of the counselor group, says, “Exhausted, but working non-stop. We cannot stop now.” We are receiving more than 4,000 contacts a day, but the need is so great. How can we refuse to answer and pray with those who are terrified, anxious, and desperate? Please continue to pray!


Feb 24, 2022: The invasion has begun. As of now we are still on the air in Ukraine. Explosions have been heard in Kyiv (the capital, also called Kiev], where our main studio is.

Our program director, Max, walked the streets of Kyiv to the broadcast studio this morning and went on the air to proclaim to listeners, “Nothing is more powerful than the Word of God at this moment.” FEBC’s counselors are working non-stop, answering people’s calls. Amazing and heartbreaking response, people are hungry for something real.

Right now our programmers are literally reading the Word of God on the air. As one of them said, “Human words aren’t working right now. We need God’s words…” Listener response to call center counselors is 4x higher than ever before. This is a level of desperation we’ve never seen.

Feb 25, 2022: We are still on the air in Ukraine. This is no small miracle. We are all realizing afresh how powerful the Word of God is as we read it on the air. Ukraine’s president has mobilized and called upon all men over 18 to stay and defend the country and countless mothers are calling into our call lines distraught over their sons. Most of them evidently have never prayed before, but now they are calling in and asking for prayer for their sons.  

As bomb explosions were heard in the background, we heard from one of the team who was on the road and talking by phone saying, “I am ready to be with Jesus…but if He lets me live, I’ll do anything and everything in my power to share His Good News with Ukrainians.”

Our team is reporting that bombs are now targeting civilian targets like apartment buildings and preschools. Many of FEBC’s teams have had to flee their homes in Kyiv, some are still on the road, others spent the night in bomb shelters. Below are posts from several of our broadcasters.

From our program director, Max: “Please continue to pray for our listeners, as they hear the message of Christ at this time. People need the Lord as never before.”  

Inna, Morning Show Host: “I am on my way to a city in western Ukraine, still don’t know where I’ll end up. When I have access to Internet, I post short messages, encouraging my listeners to give their lives to Christ. I spent last night in a bomb shelter… cold, terrible smell, crying children, crying adults, howling dogs, scared of the sounds of exploding rockets. We appreciate your prayers so much, we can’t stop ministering, but we need the power of God to continue.” 

Igor, Radio Host: “I am really afraid for my little daughters. And I know that millions of others are as well. I am using Tik Tok to reach other young parents like me, telling them about the love of Christ in this frightening time.” Igor’s wife Emma says, “I want to ask every one of you to please pray for us.” She breaks down in tears and can’t go on.



In 1945, with nothing more than a heart to reach the lost and an understanding of radio’s ability to reach far and wide, Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC) was founded in 1945 with one goal in mind: broadcasting Christ to the world.

Circling the Globe
FEBC’s programs are now heard on AM and FM stations worldwide, as well as by satellite, the Internet, and on SD cards through our Gospel Speaker Box. We are now broadcasting 1,571 hours each day in 145 languages worldwide. Four billion people live within range of our transmitters. Last year, we received 148 million listener responses, many attesting to transformed lives. FEBC is uniquely positioned near countries closed to Christian witness, and throughout the pandemic has proclaimed the gospel to people groups isolated by quarantine.

Are you thankful for this ministry at this time? Post a prayer for them in the comments.

It is very touching that FEBC Ukraine workers continue to care for lost souls even in the midst of their own lives and families at risk. Lord of Hosts, please protect FEBC workers in Ukraine. Please intervene in the situation, send your angel armies.

Praise God for keeping so many Christian stations on the air in the midst of such danger! The courage and commitment of these broadcasters is inspiring! It is also encouraging to know God is hearing and answering our prayers. We are standing with you, Ukraine!

May God continue to give them protection, strength, and faithfulness. May God use this perilous time to bring the gospel to all of Ukraine, and bring in a mighty harvest of souls.

Thank God for your faithfulness to share the gospel and continue broadcasting even in the midst of the storm. Praying for you and your families protection. I am pleading the blood of Jesus over President Zelensky and his family, and the members of Parliament. I am praying for warring angels to protect and battle for your cities, especially Kiev. I am praying that the Russian convoy on its way to Kiev is stopped before it reaches the gates of the city. Only God can give the victory, and as He has so far, I believe He will continue to do so. Hold fast. God is with the Ukranian people.

Romans 12: 14-17 JUSTICE. We pray first that you apply justice upon the governing spirits overseeing the Ukraine. Lord, we cry out for justice

Avenge your truth on behalf of those who are disadvantaged and injured from evil policies and malicious actions. Avenge these spirits who curse your name and war against peace. Correct their evil in a way that glorifies your name. Bless the people who are following these deceptive spirts so they cannot help but actually work for good. You are the one who avenges and repays the evil ones for their deeds. Because of those who are weak, or of low position, the elderly or the young, families and communities, now and for the future… even the Earth you gave us to steward and govern, we ask that these leaders be blessed as the spiritual princes above them experience justice, realize their cursed and be defeated. Psalm 37:14 The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow, To cast down the afflicted and the needy, To slay those who are upright in conduct. Psalm 37:15 Their sword will enter their own heart, And their bows will be broken.

We pray that their Earthly tools will be broken. That digital activists and hackers will disrupt their communications. That the big tech companies continue to block the monetization of their social media messaging and internet traffic. They digital war will be infiltrated with bugs and disruption from every source. In a similar way continue to cut off the finances of the aggressor.

Do not lead the Earthly leaders into temptation because we ask that you deliver US from their evil deeds. Draw them to you whether they want to or not. Protection the Earth you gave to us to govern and improve. WE know we have lost Eden, but we look forward to the time when Eden again blossoms and fills the Earth, that you may again walk among us.

We pray that the soldiers will be stricken with a keen sense of conscience. That they lay down their weapons, redirect their orders and even sabotage the commands for destruction, preserve those who act on their conscience. This includes the police forces that are commanded to break up protests against the war. Protect these civic voices of reason, and bring more workers into this field. As with the Baltic revolution, allow nonviolence, even singing to become more powerful than the machines of war. Let praise and songs of peace defeat the cunning of the spiritual princes over this land. Let the weak and the meek to inherit the land of old violence and pull down the current leaders. Beyond ending this conflict, we pray for more… that you pull down these evil leaders and begin a new tine of peace in a country that has seen so little of it.

Additionally, watch over the nuclear weapons, and prevent them from being unleashed in any way. Let the communications be confused, allow those who activate these weapons to refuse any command. Protect us all, and the earth we live in…. let YOUR kingdom come and you will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven!

Father, we pray for a great cleansing from political corruption, exposure of all evil, and protection from harm for innocent lives with the culmination of the biggest spiritual awakening in Ukraine. Raise up Your Church in Ukraine and around the world to establish Your kingdom rule there. We pray that the people would repent and turn to You and that they would dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty. We ask that you deliver them from the snare of the fowler, from lies and deception and from the noisome pestilence of bio weapons and plagues. Lift them up with angel hands from danger and cover them under Your angels’ wings. We pray for Vladimir Putin that You would arrest his heart and intervene to cause his full surrender to You and to obey Your direction. We also pray for Volodymyr Zelenskyy that he would repent for his actions that culminated in this aggression and that he would surrender his heart to You. We pray that You would guide these upcoming peace talks in Belarus, that Putin and Zelenskyy would only listen to You so that this violence would cease with divinely inspired resolutions to be agreed upon. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen

Father God, Mighty God, Most High God, we come in the name of Jesus to THANK YOU for making the way for the men and women who send your Word forth daily around the world through FEBC! We pray for your protection over every person who is part of this ministry – in work on the ground and through prayer and financial support. We pray that you continue to give them great boldness and courage to continue to shine your light and truth to the world. Lead those who do not yet know you to these stations, that they will hear the gospel and be saved. Lord God, continue to awaken and embolden your church to rise up and pray for those who are lost in the dark deception of the enemy and those who are persecuted for their faith in you. We praise you for shaking the things that need to be shaken, exposing the evil, and raising up your church to work in the ripe harvest fields of the world.

A prayer of David, personalized.
Psalm 32:10 Many sorrows come to the wicked, but unfailing love surrounds those who trust the LORD.

Dear Lord, please hear every groan and utterance in opposition to the injustices in the Ukraine. Your word says You do not delight in wickedness and the boastful cannot stand in Your presence. It also states that You destroy those who tell lies, hating the man of bloodshed and deceit. Vladimir Putin is that man. The Ukraine is a Christian nation Lord, please lead them now as they call out to You for help. Make the way straight for Your glory and their good. I pray You will declare Vladimir and his cohorts guilty and drive their army out of the Ukraine. May they be driven out of power in Russia as well and in each location they have influence… totally…forever. May many sorrows come to the wicked, but for those who trust You, unfailing love. I pray all who take refuge in You will rejoice and shout for joy as You surround them in Your shield of favor. I pray this favor for the Russian soldiers too as they lay down their arms. I believe You will lead countless to this peaceful act of defiance. Thank You Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.
